Re: Explosive devices found in London

I know this will sound a bit off-the-wall, but it must surely be coincidence that in the light of a Brexit crisis for Mrs May, we get another security alert to galvanise the country behind the government. I have not heard that anyone has claimed responsibility for the 4 packets with low-level incendiary devices with Irish stamps on the packets (just in case the message needed underlining). I am sure to be wrong!

Re: Explosive devices found in London

Sounds like another 'drone' issue to me. Similar tactics used around the world when a leader is facing internal strife.

Re: Explosive devices found in London

Yes, drones was a good example. The first I ever considered to be a hoax was Blair putting tanks on the lawn at Heathrow in advance of one of his dodgy votes for war; as soon as the vote was passed, the tanks went home and nothing more was said about that particular "threat".

Too early to point the finger IMO. The fact that there are remains from some of these packages gives security forces something to go on.

Seems strange to me, if it was genuine I'm sure it would have been more dramatic than fizzy stuff.

Re: Explosive devices found in London

Yes word on the street is you are probably talking a couple of head cases not connected to even any of the small factions

In Belfast police are said to be “ sceptical “ - police speak for its not organised types

Re: Explosive devices found in London

Seems the Republican "Real IRA" have taken responsibility for the devices using a recognised code known to authorities to verify the authenticity..
